Real World 25 for a donation of $100.00 or more
3 CDs, 38 tracks trace the rich and diverse history of one of the major 'world music' labels. From the polyphonic singing of Sardinia to the gospel music of Alabama; from modern Indian vocals experiments to the women of Finland, from traditional blues harp to Tanzanian string harps, and global fusions fostered by Real World's studio encounters, this collection will keep you fascinated for many, many hours. Artists include Afro Celt Sound System, The Blind Boys Of Alabama, Ayub Ogada, Little Axe, Jocelyn Pook, Los de Abajo, Värttinä, The Creole Choir of Cuba, Joseph Arthur, Martyn Bennett, Peter Gabriel and many many more.
